Judges of the not very prestigious Piffle Prize award for journalistic underachievement expressed their bewilderment yesterday, as The Sun's website removed yesterday's Piffle Prize winning entry from it's home page.
"It took me completely by surprise," revealed one judge. "I mean, the Piffle Prize has only been running for three days, and the Daily Mail was a hands down winner on days one and two. You'd think The Sun would have been glad to snatch the prize on day three. But apparently not. The miserable bastards pulled the story and made us look like we were just making this crap up as we went along."
A person claiming to be born and bred in Wapping issued a statement saying that the Sun hadn't actually pulled the offending article - which was about the pop singer Pixie Lott having a new hairdo - but that it merely appeared to have gotten lost.
Or been mislaid. Or something.
The Piffle Prize team acknowledge that it's a bloody tough job being a tabloid journalist and coming up with amazingly original headlines like Rhodri Giggs calling famous footballing brother Ryan a worm for shagging his wife on the side for years, but stated that it's an even tougher call for unpaid Spoofers to try to make this shit remotely funny.
So stick that up yer arse Murdoch, and next time a custard pie comes your way - duck!
More as we get it.
